Stroke Treatment and Stroke Rehabilitation

Stroke refers to a sudden loss of neurologic function caused by an interruption of blood flow to brain. There are two main types of stroke, ischemic and hemorrhagic. An ischemic stroke results from the blockage of blood flow to the central nervous system, typically from a clot. Hemorrhagic strokes are caused by rupturing blood vessels within the brain. When the brain is deprived of oxygen rich blood, nerve cells are damaged or die. Common physical and cognitive impairments associated with stroke include:

  • Weakness

  • Sensory loss

  • Difficulty speaking

  • Loss of balance or postural control

  • Uncoordinated movements

  • Difficulty swallowing

  • Memory impairments

  • Poor attention

  • Reduced initiation

  • Impaired judgement

  • Vision loss

  • Emotional dysregulation or lability

  • Pain

  • Abnormal muscle tone

  • Altered reflexes

Depending on the severity, the impairments identified above can limit your potential to move around your home or in the community independently, interfere with your ability to complete everyday tasks like bathing, grooming, or dressing, or reduce your ability to think clearly or communicate effectively with others. Your ANR team of therapists will identify and treat those impairments that are preventing you from returning to the activities you previously enjoyed. Schedule your initial evaluation to start the recovery process today!
